Collective 2014 is an invitation-only event in Park City for leaders in entrepreneurship, film, music, business, technology, philanthropy, and other creative endeavors.

The Collective connects its members with up-and-coming social impact films that are catalysts for global change. In partnership with PVBLIC FOUNDATION, we will give $300,000 in media grants during The Collective’s event in Park City. Last year, The Collective and PVBLIC supported the film "Girl Rising" -- which itself raises donations to empower girls in the developing world -- with a $100,000 grant. Rachel Cohen Gerrol of the PVBLIC Foundation and Clark Seydel, who oversees Social Impact for the Collective, will be giving the awards during the 2014 Collective event.

The program includes daytime panels on startups, technology, financing, media distribution, web and mobile apps, film, and other entertainment and business topics. At night, The Collectives hosts national-caliber music performances and a party series on Main Street.

Throughout the week, the Collective hosts various gatherings in our Lounge, brunches and dinners with top chefs, cocktail parties, and introductions to top leaders across various industries. The Collective's 2014 gathering will bring more creative leaders together to result in valuable endeavors for all of 2014.
